WHAT TEEN GOES THROUGH
by PRINCESS KRYSTAL
I really don't know what caused me to become unhappy. I was always just mad at myself, I guess it's because my parents are divorced.
I know that I was happier before I ran away from home. I was very happy with my mom, but now it seems like she can't stand me... like she hates me. I used to laugh and just sit with my mom and chat when I was happy at home. Now I just sit in my room all of the time.
I knew I was depressed and so I started counseling but that didn't help at all. My doctor put me on medication and that didn't help either. People always said they were there for me, but they weren't there when I really needed them... when I was crying.
The poem A teenager! by Jana Kaye Miller brought about a turning point for me. It really helped a lot. My life hasn't really changed, but it makes me feel a little better knowing that people out there are just like me and I'm not alone.
I don't know what to do to improve things in my life. I just hang in there and when I need to talk to someone, I just write a note to myself because I'm the only person I can trust.
I tried to commit suicide and it just made my hand ugly. Other people laugh, but there are other people out there who are just like you. Teenagers go through this kind of stuff.
